+1 to Riff Driven's question. I've got several instruments I'd like to add in the mix, focusing on guitar, but I'd like to add a wider variety of instruments for depth. Another point I'd like to make is genre. While open-ended competition is fantastic, unfortunately there will be a high chance for bias in the judging. (i.e. A metal elitist isn't going to vote for a jazz or blues piece, regardless of how well done or skilled it may be, and vice versa...)
Not really sure how to make the judging more fair, as long as it's posted as anonymous it should be fair enough, even though I'm sure I'll be able to tell who's playing when I hear it. If the people that I'm guessing are going to participate do, I'll be able to tell from their technique. Are you going to participate BMTuga? Since it's rated on kudos, I don't see why not.
Karlboy has an damn good point though, I was planing on playing something more metalish, because there's a lot of metalheads on this site, not that it's a bad thing, but I do think anything too sappy could hurt your chances.
Personally i'll give my kudos away considering the technic, creativity and the complexity of the track.
But yes, I guess my chances will be less than yours as I am considering recording an acoustic backind track with a e-guitar solo over it and maybe a few acoustic licks thrown in the middle to fill in the gaps. I'm guessing metalheads will turn their back on me =P
HEY! It is PAST the 20th! Did it already happen? Should I go ahead and give you my song? How do you want me to get it to you? Does it really have to be under 3 minutes? Or should I wait 'till the next one?
ALSO, you can't give KUDSOS on mp3's? Only stars and comments?
